Adding to the data

In order to maximise the usefulness of the database that is available on this web site, we need people to add data.

This is where individual Rotary Clubs throughout the UK can help.  We need clubs within areas to work together to collect the kind of data we need.  For appendix 2 of the Dementia Carers' Pathways, this will be within regional and council administrative areas. See the drop-down fields on the 'Getting help...' page for a breakdown of these.  Similarly, we need professionals and tradespersons that can be accessed by profession, town and post code areas.  See the 'Finding a professional...' page for examples of these.

Helping to do this and getting involved with the other activities you can read about on this site is a ready made Community & Vocational opportunity.

Each club needs to appoint someone who will be responsible for entering the data collected into the database.  In order for someone to do this, they will need a login id and password.  You can get this by emailing the webmaster.  The information you provide will be validated before login details are emailed to you.

What sort of data?

For Dementia Carers' Pathways appendix 2:

Government agencies, professional organizations, service providers, etc.  For an indication of the sort of data we need you to collate, see this appendix 2 that was collated for the Teignbridge area of Devon.

Professionals, etc:

We need details of tradesmen, professionals i.e., dentists, taxi drivers, etc., that are prepared to offer their services to dementia sufferers and their carers.
